+ Put your name on park brick

Commemorative bricks are being sold and will be placed in a walkway at West Side Park in Oakland.

Bricks vary in size, color and cost and can be engraved with three to eight lines of writing, as well as clip art. The town is taking orders until September, at which time it will have the commemorative bricks etched and laid along the path. The overall sidewalk will require about 400 bricks.
